Convict And The Rose Lyrics

Artist: Willie Nelson
Album: Tougher Than Leather

Within my prison cell so dreary alone I sit alone with aching heart
I'm dreaming of my little darling from her forever I must part

The rose she sent me as a token she sent it just to light my gloom
And tell me that her heart is broken and cheer me before I meet my doom

The judge would not believe my story the jury said I have to pay
And with the rose in all its glory not guilty's all that I could say

Goodbye sweetheart for in the morning to meet my Maker I must go
And when I die at daylight's dawning against my heart they'll find this rose
[ guitar ]
Within my prison cell so dreary...
